Christmas Gift

Presents tuck under the tree
The glow of the Christmas lights
Reflecting in the wrapping paper
My son snuggling close
As we are enveloped in a blanket
Hot chocolate cooling on the coffee table
I am listening to him talk
His voice fluctuating up and down
As he continues his story about his imaginary world
This is his lullaby to me
Smiling, I hug him close and he laughs
For he is
The greatest Christmas gift
